What is your biggest challenge with diabetes?

My biggest challenge so far has been changing my entire lifestyle at 24 years old. Going from never looking at a label on food to calculating an insulin to carb ratio every time I eat has been a challenge, but one that I strive to accomplish more every day!

What have you learned from your experiences with diabetes?

I’ve learned that every day is a new start. If today isn’t going as planned, you can start fresh tomorrow. Trying to be a perfect diabetic will never happen, all you can do is strive to do your best.
